Sir Robert Dean Jones, Jr. of Rainier passed away at his home on Thursday evening, May 13 after a brief illness. Sir Robert gave his heart & soul to this community over two decades including, yet not limited to:
– establishing his renowned I BEAT DYSLEXIA business in Yelm’s central core for many years.
– established Sir Robert’s Foundation in Rainier, “whose purpose is to fund and promote education and research in the areas of Dyslexia and other Learning Disabilities.”
– opened NEW DYNAMIC TRANSPORT with daughter Cozette Fyrst in Yelm’s central business core in April, 2008, whose mission was to “offer a revolutionary, cost effective, zero emissions, convenient and fun way of getting around,” with a unique sturdy, folding bike.
– opened Ion Ways water filtration systems with daughter Cozette Fyrst in Yelm’s central business core in February, 2010.
– published the book I Beat Dyslexia and So Can You and wrote the instructors training courses.
Sir Robert was well-known for his love of children and nowhere was this exhibited locally more than with his annual contributions to Rainier’s Children’s School of Excellence Auctions, where he made news every year including “the $40,000 paid by Sir Robert Jones for a pair of Ramtha’s boots, donated by channeler JZ Knight” in 2007.
He also possessed a trademark belly-laugh known by all that was infectious.
Sir Robert was born December 29, 1947 & grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, one of 12 siblings. He served in the U. S. Army being assigned to an infantry unit on the frontlines in Vietnam. He found his Master Teacher, Ramtha and moved to Yelm, along with most of his family in the early 1990’s.
He was appointed by Ramtha as a Red Guard, a position in which he served for 2 almost decades & most recently as a Teacher. Sir Robert always was enthusiastic about learning the power of the mind and since attending RSE, he healed his heart, thyroid & kidneys through techniques learned at RSE and had the before/after medical records to prove it. Sir Robert taught the power of the mind and how that could be applied to healing the body.
“Sir Robert’s Funeral – A Celebration” will be held on the Yelm campus of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment on Monday, May 24th at 10am in the Great Hall he loved so much.
Sir Robert touched the lives of many around the Nisqually Valley, so in a unique opportunity for our community to come together to honor this beloved man’s life, the RSE campus will be open to the public.

& Sir Robert’s grand-daughter Helen,

In closing, this poem Sir Robert wrote sums up the essence of this humble Giant!
I CAN ACHIEVE ALL THINGS
By Sir Robert D. Jones, Jr.
I wake up in the morning and hear the birds singing,
the wind whistling, and I feel the warmth of the sun.
The trees are stretching to the heavens,
the flowers are bursting with color
and the world is awakening to another day of life.
How grand it is to be a part of it all!
How many days have you awakened,
not noticing these things?
I was not fully awakened to lifes wonder
until I learned to read and write.
Now I am smelling the flowers and enjoying their fragrance
and hearing the birds fill the world with their songs.
I see the trees with their towering strength.
I breathe the wind and have found new life in all things.
How grand it is to be able to read and write!
And I give thanks to the Lord God of my being
for awakening me to the fact that I can do all things.
